What was spartas culture like?

The Spartans were professional soldiers in ancient Greece. Their martial discipline was unequaled in Western culture. Their idea of a march would be a full run for regular soldiers. To build their shield arms, they "marched" (ran) with their 60 lbs. (29 Kilo) shield straight out. The Spartan shield was key to their success in combat. A phalanx of Spartans could interlock their shields which was impenetrable at the time. A shield of that quality could not be breached alone and in combination allowed them to advance on their foes with spears penetrating the ranks of the enemy. The most famous Spartans were the 300 that stood against the 1,000,000 Persians of Xerxes' army. The Spartans managed to kill over 25,000 of Xerxes' army over the course of two and a half days.

What weapons did the Spartans use?
